Pretty Lights

Flitting between moody downtempo and upbeat, densely layered material geared for club play, Colorado's Pretty Lights was the project of Derek Vincent Smith. Smith spent his high school years making hip-hop and ultimately dropped out of his freshman year at the University of Colorado at Boulder to focus on his music. He made his recorded debut as Pretty Lights in 2006 with the full-length Taking Up Your Precious Time, which he supported with gigs for acts including STS9, the Disco Biscuits, and Widespread Panic. From there, he kept up a busy release schedule for the rest of the 2000s, issuing the double album Filling Up the City Skies in 2008 and another full-length, Passing by Behind Your Eyes, the following year. In 2010, Pretty Lights went on an extensive North American tour, playing that year's Coachella, Ultra, Movement, and Electric Zoo festivals, among other stops. Smith continued touring into 2011 and also developed his Pretty Lights Music imprint, releasing albums by Michal Menert, Gramatik, and Eliot Lipp. In 2012, Smith appeared in the music documentary Re:GENERATION Music Project and began work on Pretty Lights' fourth album. Instead of sampling existing recordings, Smith worked with longtime drummer Adam Deitch, Soulive's Eric Krasno, the Harlem Gospel Choir, and members of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the Treme Brass Band to create vintage-sounding original music that he then refashioned into the Pretty Lights sound. The results were 2013's A Color Map of the Sun, which became the first Pretty Lights album to be released physically and digitally at the same time. ~ Heather Phares & Andy Kellman, Rovi

Dear Interwebs, why is Pretty Lights so f*ing awesome? ��
Don't read this cause it actually works. You will kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. However, if you do not post this you will die in 2 days. Now, you have started reading you can't stop! This is so scary. Post this at least on five songs in the next 143 minutes. When you are done press f6 and your lovers name will come up on the screen. This is scary because it works!
Always enjoying a good musical trip.Thanks Pretty Lights for the dope music.

For all you people out there saying that Pretty Lights is a rip off because he uses samples, get real. That's like saying that collage is an invalid form of artwork because the artist uses other people's work.
This is sick. It's Def got country influences. I think this is going to catch on!
Say iPhone 5 times and pick a color and post it 5 times and look under your pillow
